She’ll love this artsy tribute to the cast and world of Firefly! The short-lived series has some diehard fans in this world, and if she’s one of them, she won’t be able to resist playing the game characters used to divvy up chores. May the loser do all the dishes!

This trinket is devoted to the man responsible for the discussion of that “wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.” If she loves Dr. Who, this pendant is sure to get a smile when she opens her stocking on Christmas morning. It doesn’t allow her to time travel, but it will help her commemorate a much-beloved show and the quote that came from it.
This candy is ideal for fans of the old Pac Man arcade game. One gift-giving idea is to give her these candies along with a red bow so that she can pretend to be Ms. Pac-Man as she gobbles up the fleeing ghosts, one delicious bite at a time.

She can declare her allegiance to the rebellion with these fantastic Firefly-themed browncoat socks from ThinkGeek. They might not be bullet proof, but they’ll still keep her feet warm and look great while doing it. The rebels didn’t usually have nice things, but she won’t mind making an exception for the socks.
You know it. She knows it. It wasn’t because you both jumped in ahead of your teammates, it’s because you couldn’t cast the spell in time from lag and now you’re all dead. If lag cheats her out of an in-game murdering spree too many times, give her this mousepad to make her laugh when she would be seeing red.
Who said you can only eat marshmallow peeps on Easter? These peeps are extra-special for fans of the infinite game that is Minecraft. She’ll want to eat them quickly so that they don’t eat her. Or explode. Or do something else that doesn’t involve her digesting them.
If she loves cooking up savory dishes in the kitchen and also enjoys a little Pokemon training on the side, give her this nifty Pokeball spice grinder. It’s both functional and geeky enough to land a smile on Christmas morning.
